I didn’t tell you guys but when the work at my job started to dry up in the holiday months, I also started having some legal things going on with the company I worked with (seems like I’m always involved in something legal, doesn’t it?).
And so dudes, I started looking for a new job and I found one. The pay is twice as much (!) as the place I was at and I actually get benefits. Sweet deal, right?
Here’s the thing – it’s a job doing demolition on the interior of buildings.
The Upside of Being a Demolition Man
I get to break things!
We use hammers, sawzalls, and torches to bust down walls, wreck ceilings, and destroy the inside of buildings. Pretty awesome, dudes! And did I mention the paycheck?
Of course you can’t just start swinging a hammer like a lunatic, there is a way to do things right. And I know how to do that. So it’s a sweet job!
Behold my demolition work:
It’s a tough physical labor job. It’s harder on you than being a carpenter or welder, which is what I was at my last job.
You get cut, bruised, scratched, and scraped every day.
Behold the stitches I had to get yesterday:
I’m hoping to put in my time at the new company (which is honestly a great company, more honest than my last one!) and move up the ranks a little so that maybe I can not die at 55 from respiratory illness.
